Title:  Let's Begin with the Letter People
Description: Let’s Begin with the Letter People is an early childhood literacy curriculum that uses 26 thematic units—each of which covers a letter of the alphabet—to develop children’s language and early literacy skills. A major focus of the program is phonological awareness, including rhyming, word play, alliteration, and segmentation. The WWC found that Let's Begin with the Letter People has no discernible effects on oral language or phonological processing and mixed effects on print knowledge for preschool children.
